Hydrodynamic Separation Systems
(Debris, Gross Solids, Suspended Solids, Sediment, Grease & Oil)
A hydrodynamic separator (HDS) is a flow-through water quality treatment systems that uses fluid dynamics to separate debris and sediment from stormwater runoff. Floatables and neutrally buoyant trash and debris are retained behind a screen, sediment is forced to settle in a sump, and hydrocarbons are retained behind a baffle or with use of absorbents. The Jensen Deflective Separator (JDS), uses cyclonic, vortex separation to concentrate debris in a fashion that prevents blocking the screening device while our Vertical Flow Clarifier (VFC) is specialized for capturing large amounts of hydrocarbons.
